Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I'm a professional musician (celtic harp) and spend about 12-15 hours a week working with folks in their last stages of Alzheimers. I'm thinking about moving to Canada and have applied for (and received my duo citizenship).
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
When I first returned from Peace Corps I told everyone who would listen that it was one of my biggest experiences--and it was great. I now am not so certain. Big, it was, but it made an already 'disatisfied with US politics mind' even more disatisfied.
